Shower was black mouldy, bed broken , room dirty & freezing bar a joke , shouting & screaming from other rooms , bed leg full of tea bags and milk cartons, money taken without permission , I'd never stay here again unless it was Halloween and I was covered in mud ,

He showed us to our rooms - OMG what a disgrace! bed covers were stained - in large patches - dust on and under the pillow, the lampshade hadnt seen a cleaning cloth since the day it was... More

After reading many of the reviews we were a bit apprehensive,but needn't have been.We found the manager very friendly and upon arival as it wasn't busy he upgraded us to room with a sea view,Without us asking for it which was a bonus. So it's not the poshest of places but what do you expect for the price you pay!!!!!... More

I know this hotel wasn't expensive, but I thought it would be much nicer than it was. The manager was nice and helpful and polite on arrival but not overly friendly or welcoming. Our room was very very tatty, all of the furniture was very old, with handles falling off, it all looked like it would have all been picked... More

Cheap and cheerful, depends how easily pleased you are. The staff were very friendly and Helpful and rates are cheap. Only stopped overnight so expected nothing More as most b&bs in Blackpool are similar. Old fashioned and decor is bad but warm and bedding is clean. Breakfast was ok.

My family & I recently stayed at The Roker Hotel for a week. Needless to say, after reading the reviews on here I was deeply worried about what we were going to find once we got there but I needn't have worried. We were made very welcome on arrival. Rooms & beds were clean. Plenty of hot water throughout the... More

At the end of the day, no disrespect to the place but you are stopping in a bed and breakfast in Blackpool. For the money we paid I have no problem advising people to stay here. Beds where clean, food really nice, staff friendly, free car park of which unlike other reviews I had no problem in parking in. Room... More

We parked on the hotels hardstanding for free right outside the hotel in one of the spaces allotted for guests. But if you're parked in front and want to get out, the cars behind have to be moved. Overall the hotel looked like it could do with a sprucing up. Our room number 16, was small but as we were... More
